CTG to offer discount tickets

Plays include 'Spring Awakening,' 'School of Night'

Offering "a little escape from all the bad economic news," the Los Angeles Center Theater Group's artistic director Michael Ritchie announced a new discount program that will make 100,000 tickets available at $20 each for CTG's three theaters -- the Ahmanson, Mark Taper Forum and Kirk Douglas.

The $20 tickets are now available for "Spring Awakening" at the Ahmanson, "The School of Night" at the Taper and "The Little Dog Laughed" at the Douglas.

"We recognize that the days ahead are belt-tightening days for all of us and we want to reach out to theatergoers to say you can be frugal and still see good theater," said Ritchie.
